Nightclubbing 13 year old busted unconscious

By johnboy 26 May 2009 46

The ABC is aghast the level of underage drinking police have uncovered around town.

    An ACT Police campaign against underage drinking in licensed premises has found an 13-year-old girl unconscious on a couch in city bar.

    They have highlighted the case of the 13-year-old as an ‘appalling’ example but also report finding 27 underage people in a Tuggeranong pub last saturday night.

    Suddenly axing the Liquor Licensing Board doesn’t look so clever does it?

What’s Your opinion?

and So am I

(Mrs Berra called me for dinner and I hit the ‘Post’ button in my haste to the table)

… and that’s why you’re slightly overweight and don’t want to go anywhere! (that might take you too far from the table).

ah-ha! so that is what i am doing wrong. wait. I cook in the house…
at 13, I was spending friday nights down at lake gininderra, with (urgh) bottles of royal reserve port, and equally stupid mates. It was always easy to get the grog, as our parents all bought it for parties, but could never remember where they put it…

and the movies was a good excuse, as long as someone went so that they could tell you what happened, and you escaped detection…

Back when this kind of thing didn’t seem quite so rampant, the average parent would touch base with the parents hosting that homework bee or slumber party or whatever it was, just to check everything was OK. Low key, but cautious.

Check the stats, alcohol and drug abuse by the kiddies is *less* rampant now than it used to be. But, since the times of the Ancient Egyptians, everyone’s been screaming about how youth are the worst they’ve ever been and we’ll all be rooned, and from the looks of things here, nothing’s changed.

I’m amazed that you never got up to any shenanigans when you were young. What’s the deal?

ant, do you really mean to say that when you were 13 you weren’t capable of getting up to things your parents didn’t know about?

When I was that age I didn’t drink or consume other illegal substances. That didn’t start till I was about 14 or 15… But even then, it was the exception rather then the rule for a few more years. This however had more to do with my friends rather then my moral stance. I got up to plenty that my parents were not aware of, several of which would probably see you locked up on terrorist conspiracy charges these days. And all without the research assistance of the interwebz.

(There is, on the other hand, a great deal one can do about underaged customers being served alcohol in licensed establishments).

Where did it say anything about “late at night” or “11pm or later” in the original article?

And I think you are massively underestimating the ingenuity of the average 13 year old if you think that they aren’t capable of being in one place when their parents think they’re in another, late at night or otherwise. Short of keeping them locked under the stairs, there’s not a great deal anyone can do to change that.

Ant,
did you never go to the “movies” with your friends?
“Cmon Mum, its a movie marathon at Cosmopolitan Twin Cinemas, all the kids are going.”
